Summary, etc.:
"For the first time ever, Christmastown is celebrating a strange new tradition--Halloween. But not everyone is willing to watch their dependable winter wonderland get overrun by carved pumpkins and costume parties. As a series of scary happenings hits Santaland, each one more intense than the last, April realizes having a role in the festivities could cost her family, friends--even her own life. April isn't the only unlucky target. Outspoken elf Tiny Sparkletoe is found dead in the snow outside his cottage, crushed in the middle of what appears to be a monstrous footprint. With mayhem descending like reindeer on rooftops, April must stop the Halloween killer before the fate of Mrs. Claus becomes another creepy tale to tell in the dark . . ."--Page 4 of cover.

    April Claus, wife of the acting Santa Claus, is determined to bring one of her favorite holidays, Halloween, to Santaland. Decorations are up, pumpkins are ripening in a greenhouse, and excited elf children are waiting to don their costumes and collect candy. Unfortunately, the pumpkins are smashed, the library receives a threatening message, and a prominent elf is collecting signatures on a petition against the holiday. Things become more serious with the attempted murder of Mrs. Claus, and the killing of an elf, who was apparently crushed by an Abominable, a snow monster from the Farthest Frozen Reaches, leading panicked residents to prepare for an attack. Due to the ineptitude of the bumbling local constable, April and private detective Jake Frost investigate. Complicating matters, April alienates a good friend when she warns her about her overattentive boyfriend. Multiple plot twists, quirky, characters, plenty of humor, and the lovingly described, magical Santaland distinguish this entertaining cozy. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
